42' Catalina 42 MK I '89 "Calypso"

Catalina 42s are a great blend of comfort and function. Large enough for entertaining and cruising, while laid out for ease of handling and low maintenance. CALYPSO moved to San Diego from San Francisco in 2018 and has been cared for and maintained by her knowledgeable owner. These boats are capable of crossing oceans and easy for two to handle. Her cosmetics are excellent and she has upgraded electronics.
